Don't need new music until this is organized.

I’ve been on a huge Redd Kross kick.  This is one of the greatest TV performances I’ve ever seen.  

Keep on chooglin!

Between my two other (?!) CB compilations, I think I have all the bases covered. Every freakin' track is awesome.

RI Deluxe version. I don't care what the, "true believers", say. The extra LP with the alternate mixes is fukkin' COOL.

Another RSD gem. Red and yellow discs. Second LP has studio versions of unreleased songs that were played live for many years. Unedited version of, "The Seeker", crushes pretty hard.

I'm sitting at the computer reading some news, checking email and Facebook, and figured I could use some music to comb the kinks and gnarlies out of my brain waves.

Fortunately, I chose this LP wisely:

This is Metheny in pure acoustic solo mode with a range of guitar-based string instruments. The album opens with Simon & Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence" played on Metheny's bespoke "Pikasso" 42-string guitar:

He also plays on a nylon string classical and an acoustic baritone guitar:

These tracks are amazing. He has an incredible way of creating instrumental covers of vocal songs that convey the emotions of the original compositions. His renditions took me through a range of emotions from nostalgia to melancholy to personal reflection to jubilation to a peaceful calm.

And isn't just about everything we seek from good music? Pat conveyed it all in a 2-LP set.

It ain't death metal, but I highly recommend it when you get into an acoustical mood.

Technical notes: A few months ago I bought an Audio Technica low-output moving coil cartridge (LOMC). I've used it several times but I think this is the first time I used that cartridge with this album. It was a revelation. I could sense each note form from the metallic tone of the plucked string to the transfer of vibration to the guitar body to the swell of the air compressing and escaping to deliver the resonant aspect of the resulting tone.

It reminds me of why I like well-tuned hi-rez audio; it delivers the emotional content of the music.

Great album! I always thought that the outro on The Song Is Over could have been an entirely separate song, then when I bought Odds and Sods so many years ago, it all made sense.
